CloudTot Baby Monitoring System
The CloudTot sleeper is a smart cot that thinks it’s a babysitter. As well as being a cosy bed for baby, the intergrated sensor technology allows parents to keep an eye on their little one in a number of innovative ways. The tech monitors temperature levels, can play white noise or any music of your choice, and it can even detect a leaking nappy. You can also use the app to take and store photos.
But that’s not all. The CloudTot will keep track baby’s movement and breathing. If no motion is felt after 12 seconds, the patent-pending ‘Pep Pegs’ device will give baby a gentle nudge to make sure they are okay. Could this be a baby gear game changer? We’ll have to wait and see as the CloudTot isn’t due to hit the market until summer 2017. For more information visit here.
